OK, now I know what you’re talking about!
I think the geekdad post addresses GG, it addresses the very thing that started GG. Lets face it, the only thing that GG has been successful at is driving women out of their homes. It makes sense that this is the thing that gets addressed.
I know you don’t agree that this is what GG is about, but you don’t have to agree for this next bit to be true:
GG has not successfully raised awareness about “Ethics in games journalism”, it has not raised awareness about corruption in game reviews, its only gossiped about it but has not actually attempted to even document specific cases and denounce the people or companies who are involved and in what ways it affects reviews.
Heck, I’ve layed out a better roadmap for GG to actually talk about “ethics in games journalism” in my last paragraph than GG has even dared to suggest at any point in its history, not at the beginning when there was outrage that Zoey Quinn’s ex boyfriend alleged that she traded sex for positive reviews, and not now that he said its not true and gaters want to forget that’s the reason GG came to be about “ethics in games journalism”
Look, I don’t care if you want to talk about game reviews and how to stop bad review practices. But nobody in GG is serious about these things, no matter how much they claim to care about them. There are no people able to talk about “ethics in games journalism” in the GG crowd, all I’ve seen is people claiming that its about ethics in games journalism and not doing anything meaningful about it. and for all their efforts they won’t see how badly everything they’ve tried has failed.
without getting into what GG is about, I’ll just say that GG hasn’t been effective at doing anything about ratings in games. It has only managed to harass women. This post addressed that.
